Write Your Life Story E Course Edition
Whether you want to write a journal or an autobiography, the Write Your Life Story E-Course gives you a structure for what you want to write; many ideas to get you started and enthusiastic; and an understanding of new techniques to bring back memories and write a vibrant story.
The original version was released in 2000 as an online course and the course was also taught within that decade through TAFE Queensland and the Brisbane City Council libraries. It may still be available through U3A Online, but would have been updated and re-written by later authors.
Bev: "I have really enjoyed completing the exercises. Numerous long forgotten memories, many happy and many painfully sad, have arisen... I have downloaded many of the items, documents etc, and have made a reference folder. I have culled the mountains of papers that I was hanging onto and set up my study for easy access to notes, journals etc...
The course has also made me rethink how I am going to complete my Dad's Story... It has also given me other ideas to consider. I believe the course has provided the tools and resources to assist me to make better judgements regarding these potential changes.
Finally the course has given me the motivation and courage to complete the story I started just after my Dad's death. I used to worry that I was putting to much emotion into my writing and that I would bore people to death, but I have learnt that this is okay, this is how my life experiences have moulded me. Each week I have loved reading everyone's work... Also thank you Cate for your guidance and encouragement."
Megan: "I took an online course in autobiography and journalling... and I have my first e-book published! Don't Mind Me is published by Chipmunka www.chipmunkapublishing.co.uk and will soon be a paperback too. I tell my story, of my dysfunctional childhood, my first marriage... my descent into psychosis and my extraordinary recovery... The e-book is still no 8 in the top 10 of 380 e-books and I hope the paperback won't be too long now." (March 2008)
